Pro Grip 714 Dual Sport Grips
Easy Install on '09 BMW F800GS (with heated grips)
Just got these grips to replace old, worn out stock ones on my 2009 F800GS... Other sites/reviews seemed to think that removal of stock grips was difficult... That may have been true for others, but on my '09, it was easy and fast... Also, others seemed to think that you needed two pairs as the throttle side (24mm) was needed for both sides due to the heating elements... Well that was not the case for me... Using some cheap hair spray as lube/adhesive, I was able to use the 22mm on left and 24mm on right with no problem... Of course I followed the advice and bought two pairs, so now I have a backup set... I did have to cut the ends off to use with my bar ends, but no big deal.... Good, cheap replacement for the thinner, crappier stock grips...

Been using these grips on bikes for over a decade
They are very comfortable and allow a better grip. I replace OEM grips with these whenever I get a bike. My DRZ has a pair on it that are at least a dozen years old and may last forever.

not that great
I commute 80+ miles a day on my cbr1000rr. Lately, my hands have been feeling like they've been overworked from all the vibration. I read the great reviews of these gel grip, and I thought they were worth a try. Overall, I think they are okay. They probably absorb vibration but not that much better than the stock Honda grips. Luckily, these grips are cheap, and so no real loss.

a standard for me
a low profile cushion grip, helps subside the vibrations without having a large diameter, works well with underlying grip heaters, have been using these on my street bikes for 15 years.

These grips are almost perfect. They were easy to install, they look good (better than the photos), and they feel good. They are gel and somewhat thicker than my stock Ninja 1000 grips. They fit the handlebars perfectly. They do a fairly good job of minimizing vibration. You really can't go wrong with these at $10.
I can only compare these to my stock grips and the Kuryakn 6344 grips for $62+. The Kiryakn were horrible in every way - hard metal and fairly hard rubber, glued on with super glue! They were very uncomfortable, conveyed vibration worse than the stocks, and it took me over two hours to remove them, including the glued-on rubber and the glue stopping up the throttle movement. Don't buy the Kuryakn grips!

as sold on Randakk's, but much cheaper
Got these for my GL1000; Randakk recommends them. Much cheaper than he sells them, and afaik exactly the same thing (he's out anyhow).
Nice grips, for an extra pimp touch run some safety wire around the groves. Looks sweet, makes them slip proof without using any hairspray, and keeps them easy to remove.

I have these on my '82 Honda CM450C. They cut down the vibrations a lot. They are very grippy and very comfortable. I would strongly recommend these grips!

My Go-To Grip For All Bikes...
These are THE best grips I have found. The grip material itself is a squishy rubber that helps insulate your hands from bar vibration and gives you a good grip. The shape is slightly thicker in the middle and fills your palms. They're also just slightly thicker than stock grips, which for me is more comfortable.
The only negative (and a SLIGHT one at that) is that they can be a bit difficult to get a straight cut on with the pattern in the grip.
Oh yeah, and measure twice, cut once! There's nothing worse than having to order a second set because you cut the clutch side too short...
